 Gee... now the same thing is happening to me.  Or happened.

 I too dropped an ACK on an unexpected interface.  It started as soon as I
enabled bridging, which I haven't done for months.  I couldn't get anything to
work, with or without ipf, until I moved my bridge onto some new interfaces and
took my firewall's management interface (the only interface with an IP) out of
the bridge.  I don't recall a restiction like this before.  Did something
change within the last few months?
